Also one suggestion would be to make sure your old video drivers are removed. This is a very common mistake when upgrading computer components.

Userprofiles in alternate location?

by passingby In reply to ATI Radeon 9550

If you get this warning:

Internal Failure
Error Number: 0x80040707

..when starting the setup, it's a problem with InstallShield. You probably have (part of) your All Users-profile on an 'alternate' location. InstallShield can't cope with that. See

If that doesn't work, you might also have to change userprofile location to Windows default.

Good luck!

Perhaps this will help (re. ATI Radeon 9550)

I had a similar problem today with a Diamond Stealth x1050 card. As I tried to install the software from the CD, I received the same error messages (0x80040707, islayer, 0x80040702, etc).
I got the card to work after tinkering for a bit and this is what worked for me:
The Catalyst *.exe file on the original CD (or the one downloaded from ATI) loads a new folder 'ATI' on the C drive. There is a subfolder in there with all the drivers. I installed the driver from this ATI folder via the Device Manager...This way, you won't have all the fancy items the full catalyst installer may give you, but the card worked!!!!!!!!

I am using Windows 2K, by the way.
